Counterbalance • 30 May 2008 • The SnowBlog



Although I no longer have any standing water in my house, it's still not as easy to get excited about things today as it sometimes is. And what with the recent posts about Life After People and the shortsighted desire to keep the fossil fuel taps wide open it's easy to let an element of wistfulness creep into one's vibe. Looking at the picture to the left helps a little (click it for a decent-sized version). A nice shiny gadget. Taking a picture of itself on another planet. Another planet. It's NASA's Image of the Day. Thanks, NASA. Assuming you're not investigating Mars because you want to strip mine it or bomb it or something, then I can happily bask in the nobility of your pioneering spirit.  


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
